Hello interweb, Nate here. So I haven’t used this Comixplanations segment as much as I originally planned. Ah well. So anyhoo, we have heard from Warner Bros that Ben Affleck is not only playing Batman in the DCEU Batman movies but will also be directing it. Of course you can’t do an MCU-styled DC movie universe without making at least one Batman solo film. We know that Wonder Woman’s movie is in the works (I reviewed the first trailer) and Man of Steel 2 is currently in development (PLEASE make it better than the first movie) and on top of that Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg, and Green Lantern are all getting their solo movies. So with that there’s quite a bit of questions and speculations that we can make while waiting. However while a few of those characters I know very little about (like Aquaman), I do know most of the characters in the Justice League as well as their history and characters. And while any one of them can make a really good movie series given the right creative teams (barring Cyborg really since he honestly needs the Teen Titans to be the least bit interesting), Batman in particular has the potential for a greater movie series than even the beloved Dark Knight trilogy with so many villains and allies that have yet to be used fully in a previous Batman movie. But there’s one ally that I’m really curious on how they’re gonna go about with: Robin! (more…)

Past the spoiler-free section will have spoilers. Also, the “Ratings” section at the bottom of the post will be spoiler-free as well. You have officially been warned.
Hello interweb, Nate here. So Monday I talked about what is going on with Convergence, and Yesterday I reviewed Convergence: Superman #1. Today I review Convergence: Batgirl #1! Let’s geth this review going! (more…)
Damian Wayne, True Son of Batman, the Fifth Robin and the Fourth Main Robin
Hello interweb, Nate here. So you may notice that I called this Robin the fifth Robin even though this is my forth Robin bio. That is because the Fourth Robin is technically the blink-and-you’ll-miss-her Stephanie Brown who is my personal favorite Robin (I like the other Robins best when they change their ID, Nightwing, Red Robin, etc.) and had an extremely short run as Robin and as a result isn’t that significant to the other Robins. There is also Carrie Kelley who was a non-cannon Robin but due to the fact that the non-cannon story The Dark Knight Returns is one of the most famous Batman stories, people like to include her. And so I decided that that is the poll for today: Do you want me to do a Bio on the two remaining Robins? And you can choose between Stephanie Brown, Carrie Kelley, Both, or Neither. Either way, I’m not going to get to them before I complete my reader-requested Ant-man Character Bio.
With that mouthful of announcements aside, I did a Character Bio for Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, and Tim Drake. Now for the fourth male Robin, the fourth main Robin, and the Fifth Robin in general: Damian Wayne, the true son of Batman. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. So as of lately I guess it’s kind of obvious that I have been busy as I haven’t posted last Monday nor this past Saturday. However, I did get the Tim Drake Character Bio finished and ready for ya’ll to enjoy. So first we did the first Robin: Dick Grayson, then the second Robin: Jason Todd, now it’s time for the third Robin to get some love.
Also, I’ll try to get Damian Wayne’s bio done soon (the fourth male Robin). Since I have already promised a reader that I’ll get an Ant-man bio up (he or she probably requested it for the upcoming Ant-man movie), I’ll probably get to Stephanie Brown later on and maybe Carrie Kelley (she was a Robin in the non-cannon graphic novel Dark Knight Returns) if you guys want (comment below). But the biggest post this month is going to be a Halloween themed post: The Top 10 Most Disturbing Marvel and DC Characters. I already came up with a few, but I want you guys to either comment below or on my Facebook fan-page on some characters that you find disturbing. The rules are basically as long as the character belongs to DC or Marvel, it qualifies (which mean it can be a superhero or villain, although I’ll bet most, if not all, of them will be villains).
